Due to ongoing precautionary measures, massage therapy services may not be available in all communities. Please contact providers directly regarding availability.


My massage is based on healing, relaxing, refreshing and restoring body mind and soul. I do this by resetting the nervous system and muscles and working your tissues with great care. I carefully test and target reflexes as I balance and heal the relationships between muscle groups. I use a variety of pressures and techniques and work according to your needs.

My goal is to help you feel and perform better by correcting patterns of muscular compensation and through the... activation of specific pathways as I relax, heal, and refresh your body and mind, leaving you supple and at peace.

We will work to reset and optimize your breathing and posture, awaken your glutes, and make movement feel effortless. When we are done, you should feel stronger and healthier. As I serve Minneapolis, St. Paul and the Twin Cities Metro area, my service is always LGBTQ friendly, and is open to all, including those who are gay, bisexual, pansexual, and straight.

I do all of my booking via text message.

Text me your name, the number of minutes you would like, and some examples of your availability. I will coordinate with you, propose a time and date, and answer any questions you may have.

Booking in advance is optimal.

Feel free to ask me about personal training and wellness consultation.

Gathered by Michael from admiring massage clients to share with you.

Feb. 13, 2020 in Minneapolis, MN (in-studio)

Michael has a wonderful, healing presence. He is extremely skilled and has an amazing touch. He flows with an intuition about my body that I've rarely experienced. The benefits he provides extend far beyond our regular sessions.

His massages improve the quality of my life, and I'm so grateful for him.
